A tow truck driver was grazed by a car this morning while he was inspecting his tractor-trailer. The Hancock County Sheriff’s office reports the incident happened around 6:30 a.m. at the intersection of County Road 140 and Portage Township Road 114.
A semi got stuck as it tried to make a turn at the intersection. A tow truck driven by 35-year-old Dale Sortor of Findlay moved the tractor-trailer from the intersection and parked it along the side of Road 140. As Sortor was collecting information, he was hit in the back by the side mirror on a car driven by 46-year-old Shelly Bennett of West Leipsic.
Sortor was taken to Blanchard Valley Hospital for treatment of injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
